A labour activist who returned to Myanmar last year after years of exile says he will sue the newspaper Irrawaddy for “unethical reporting”.

U Maung Maung, general secretary of the National Council of the Union of Burma, told reporters last week that a Myanmar-language article in the Irrawaddy blog of February 8 had damaged his reputation and that of his organisation.

The story headlined “NUCB General Secretary fired” alleged that U Maung Maung had “broken the rules” of the organisation, and accused him of failing to repay borrowed money. It was based on a press release signed by U Myint Thein, the group’s joint secretary.



“It’s unethical and unfair. I will not accept a correction, but take legal action. It hurts my name which I’ve built for 20 years, as well as the image of my organisation,” said U Maung Maung, insisting to local journalists that the report was “totally wrong”.

“Irrawaddy has no ethics. They didn’t approach me for comment and did not seek confirmation from anyone. They could have contacted me, or anyone from the NCUB,” said a visibly angry U Maung Maung. “Irrawaddy should change now that we’re in a transition to democracy.”

U Maung Maung sought exile in Thailand after the 1988 student uprising, and became involved in NCUB, which says it advocates for democracy, human rights and federalism in Myanmar, after the organisation was founded in 1992.

He returned to Myanmar in September and started advocating for labour rights, offering training on labour rights with the International Labour Organisation in Myanmar.

U Myint Thein told reporters via Skype from Chiang Mai that he had not drafted or signed the press release and only knew about the news when he was informed by U Maung Maung.

“What I can say is that our organisation never made that announcement. I never signed it,” he said.

“U Maung Maung has worked hard for our organisation and for labour rights in general,” U Myint Thein said. Continue reading “HOT NEWS: MAUNG MAUNG SLAMS “UNETHICAL” IRRAWADDY BLOG”

Hackers have been attempting to gain control of Facebook accounts belonging to Eleven Media reporters and Web administrators,

EMG  Published on Monday, 18 February 2013

Hackers have been attempting to gain control of Facebook accounts belonging to Eleven Media reporters and Web administrators, according to notifications from the social-media company.

Facebook has informed Eleven Media staff via email that attempts to enter their accounts had been made from unfamiliar locations, citing the hackers’ login IP, country, email address and time zones.

According to notifications from Facebook last week someone attempted to enter the accounts of Eleven Media information technology manager Zaw Ye Naung and executive editor Nay Tun Naing using the email address sn1ff3rg0dbot@gmail.com.



Hackers used IP, which belongs to internet service provider Myanmar Posts and Telecommunication (MPT).

Hackers also attempted to enter Eleven Media Web operator Tin Htet Naing’s Gmail account earlier this month as well as the Facebook account of Web operator Naing Naing Htet using the addresskyawblaze@gmail.com. Both hacking attempts used the IP address, which belongs to MPT.

MPT and Yatanarpon Teleport can investigate as notifications of the hacking attacks identify the local IPs and time zones used.

Login notifications can be enabled via Facebook’s security settings which will alert account owners by their primary email address every time an attempt is made to enter their Facebook account.

Websites of local media as well as their Facebook accounts and the Gmail accounts of reporters and other media staff have been under attack from hackers since January.
